As always, Hell City brings new and exciting events for the artists, collectors, enthusiasts and attendees and, every year, we listen to our artists and attendees as to what they would like to see at the fest.

This new and exciting addition to the second floor ballroom of Hell City now allows us to feature more tattooing as well as a variety of new shopping vendors including body jewelry, tattoo clothing, fine art prints, and various oddities that you won’t find any other tattoo convention!

Works displayed in the fine art gallery are from attending Hell City tattoo artists who showcase their other talents including paintings, sculptures, and flash.
